remember

CHECK YOUR BLINDSPOT!!! MAKE IT OBVIOUS!!!

Totally agree with this statement. Make sure you overdo it so that the tester knows you are doing it.

its not mandatory to do a parallel park to pass. Just show the examiner that you can drive and your good to go. When i did my G 1.5 years ago, it was literally done in about 5 minutes. Got on the DVP while its busy, took the first exit, turned and went straight back on the DVP and exit back into the test centre and i was done. I didn't have to do any parking or anything... I guess it was cause the fact that i told him i drive 7 days a week and take highway 3 to 4 times a day. Also because the DVP was busy but not stop and go (so around 70kmph at the time) so it would be hard for new drivers to lane change. I just signaled, look to see i have a little bit of space, slightly go on the side of my lane to indicate to the other driver that i want to switch over, the other driver let me go in, and i thanked him and thats about it.

However, on my G2 i did have to do parallel and 3 point turn and all that jazz. G test is different from G2, because when your getting your G you already have driving experience, so they just test to see if you can drive properly or not. G2, you are kind of a new driver, so they want to test more things that you are not yet used to.

I'm doing my G2 exit test (G) next week. When driving on the highway, which lane do I use? The right most lane (where cars that are entering the freeway merge to the left), or the lane to left of that lane (if that makes sense..). My guess would be the lane to the left of it, because if I was merging onto the highway I wouldn't want my lane to be full. Correct me if I'm wrong please :)

Travel in the far right lane unless passing, if people are merging and there is no space move to the left one lane if it is safe to do so.

I just had my G Road Test in Oakville this PM and what a horrible result and assesment. This Examiner littered my exam sheet with "Uneven Speed" in Highway, Business district and even in a Three point turn. Where the hell can you see an uneven speed in a 3 point turn where you basically just making a turn to drive in the opposite side of the road instead of a U-turn. And in the QEW; its been busy that time of the day at around 1:30 p.m. and he wants me to maintain a speed of 100km/hour in the presence of a trailer in front of me that is running at 80-90 km/hr and in changing lanes where cars and all types of vehicles are present. IMO maintaining the prescribed speed in a Highway depends on the traffic and road condition as i read in the Drivers Manual. This particular examiner doesn't have a hint of consideration on that aspect all he know is hit the 100km/hr regardless of the traffic around your vehicle. Road Test here in GTA is a brisk business when you can get lucky on your test day and be included in the quota/numbers that they will pass. It also depends on the type of examiner you will be assigned; if he/she is nice or an a**hole like the one i encountered just this afternoon. Now, i'm thinking if we have some sort of a government agency to go to report/appeal this kind of results/assesment.

I believe the examiner is a major factor during the test, I took my very first G2 test at the Hamilton Kenora location and it was a horrible experience. Did my G2 and G in Burlington and it was great (one try for each), both times the examiners were very reasonable. Before my G test I was actually told "if you need to go above the speed limit to merge safely do it!" It was a bit busy at the Burlington location during my G test (1:25pm) but was extremely easy to do the lane changes on the highway, once traffic picks up you just stay a safe distance and keep with the pace (if slower then speed limit). As for reporting it to the government they wont do a thing, Drive Test is a private company which the government pays to do the testing. All I can recommend is book your test at the Burlington location, and hope you don't get a (insert expletive here) examiner, which is really a 50/50 chance it seems.

Hello! Sorry to resurrect an old topic but it really calmed my nerves and I thought the least I could do is contribute. I did my drive test today and successfully got my G! I've scanned and uploaded a picture of the examination sheet so everyone can take a look at what we're being graded on. Good luck to all!

Click here for the image! (I had it inline before but it was too big.)

Apparently a tick in a box is a bad thing - the only ticks you want are under "completed" on the very bottom. Again, good luck to everyone!
